A few more photos and an update

So my midwife just left, and I'm feeling happy :) Still no sign of baby appearing any time soon, but that's OK. The little heart is still beating, I feel better today than I have in a while, and the sun is shining! Oh, and I lost a pound, haha :) Not that it makes or breaks my day, but it doesn't hurt!

We talked about the whole birth process, and what to do if this baby decides to come before we can make it to the hospital. That, I have to admit, was something I hadn't really thought of. But I'm not terribly worried about it. Probably helps that I was considering a homebirth!

Oh, and I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but my iron was low, so that does account for my snow cravings :) What a relief... I'm not going crazy after all! I've been taking Floridix pills, so hopefully that will bring things back to a normal level before the birth.

So maybe I should open up the comments for guesses on this baby! What do you think it will be (boy/girl), when do you think it will come, and how big? Here's my kids stats so far:

Rowan Seth Friesen- Born 8 days early on July 20th, 2005
8 pounds, I forget how long, but I *think* 21 inches or so.

Bria Marynn Friesen - Born 7 days early on July 30th, 2007
8 pounds 2 ounces, 21 1/2 inches long

Here's my guess on what you'll have...

boy, born on February 24, 8lbs 5oz...and he'll be as cute as can be with more red hair! :)

Drea said...

S Club Mama said...

That is a great necklace. I'll guess Feb. 21 a boy and 8lbs 2oz and 21.5 inches

Anonymous... you're just not funny, and I'm deleting your comments from now on. I'm so sick of your rudeness and disrespect. Good bye.

38 weeks and 6 days...really???!!! How did that happen so fast?! :) So, by "no signs", does that mean you are NOT having any braxton-hicks contractions? Those can be so tricky at the end...ugh. Glad you are getting caught up on your iron, that will certainly help you feel better, especially after delivery.

I am TERRIBLE at guessing info. I'm never even close. But here goes: February 21, 2:30ish a.m., girl, 7 lbs 15 oz, 21 inches long. ;)

You gotta add one more boy to that family, afterall the Thiessens are a little short on males, don't ya think?
Boy, I actually don't even know your due date, so I'll guess Feb. 20th, 8 lbs, 4 oz. and lots of red hair.

Ellen said...

YAY!! my favorite part, guessing what you're having!! For me it's a tough call but I think I'm gonna go with a boy, at 6 days early which I think would put it at Feb 20th.. about 8lbs and 8oz and 21.5" I am so excited for you Stacey!! Can't wait to hear your exciting news :) and see those wonderful pics of ur new baby :) (I didn't see what 'anon' posted but I applaud you for sticking up for yourself and asserting your right as blog author!)

3 for Me! said...

I'm horrible about guessing.... but I've always heard that when you loose a bit of weight that you body is getting ready for labor;) So we'll see for you:)

Oh but, my first 2 were a few days early and my 3rd was a week late and I had to be induced!!! LOL!! So she balanced it all out!!

Praying for an enjoyable end to your sweet pregnancy:) And looking forward to "meeting" the next little Friesen:)

Elaine said...

Ok, I wanted to guess for Feb. 19th but since Liane did that I'm guessing Feb. 18th and I'm for sure for a girl and lets just hope she is gone be another red head!:)

Shanilie said...

My guess is another girl

8 lb
20 inches long

Maybe on the 25th?

Can't wait to meet this little person.

Sounds like everything is right on track. ;) I think Monday Feb 22 is your day and that baby will weigh 8.5lbs.

Eva said...

By the looks of your stats I'm thinking Feb 20th, 7 lbs 6oz and 21 inches long... oh, and a boy. Enjoy. I'll keep you and the little one in prayer as he/she makes their way into the world.

Micki said...

Such gorgeous photos! I love your necklace too, btw.

Hmmmm, boy or girl? I'm going to guess boy. I have no idea why :) I can't wait to hear the results.

Thinking of you - hugs!

Stam House said...

Love those pictures!!!! You and your belly look adorable!!!!

Well I'll say a boy about 8.5 lbs born and the day that our Lord as set for him "He knows all the days of our life before one came to be" (Psalm 139)
21 inches long and blond this time with blue eyes!!!

BTW losing 1 or 2 lbs is a signs that baby will be coming soon :-)
